Yesterday, my new motorcycle jacket arrived. The BMW Kalahari. It's got elbow, shoulder and spine armor, a zip-out rain jacket, and 7 rainproof pockets and a zillion vents. It's lighter and less binding than I was thinking it would be, while still being warm, snug, water-resistant, and tough.
The pants arrive later today.
The best part is, I got them both for about $500. Yay for bargain shopping!!
